Complainant Name:
Lord Ahmed of Rotherham

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Lord Ahmed of Rotherham complained that comments he had made about Geert Wilders refused entry to Britain had been misreported: he had not said that Mr Wilders should be put on trial for inciting hatred in his country of origin, but that he was to be prosecuted in his own country for inciting racial hatred.


The newspaper provided the reporters notes in support of its position that the complainant had been quoted accurately. However, it removed the article from its website and annotated its databases with the complainants concern. The complaint was resolved on this basis.

Report: 79
